Uncoated, difficult to string, and at 54lbs. won't last long, but OMG!, I can rip a topspin forehand in the forecourt and it always goes in. Huge serving power, with pocketing that nearly rips the cover off the ball. Wilson NXT Tour and NRG2 on my other Hypercarbon Hammer 4.3 MP frames are no comparison. Wilson Cushion-Aire Sponge Grip is also wonderful. Asics Gel 6 is the first shoe I've owned that I didn't need gel inserts. Lighter with more cushion than the Yonex SHT304Rs and indestructible. Order 1/2 size large!
